open wide

      When the present is squeezed between your past regrets and your future fears, you don’t have much breathing space (or joy).

“I have lived [as] the runner, panting ahead in worry, pounding back in regrets, terrified to live in the present, because here-time asks me to do the hardest of all: just open wide and receive.” Ann Voskamp

“[B]ecome like little children. . . .” Matthew 18:3
